STOCKTON, Calif. (AP) — A naked man in Northern California led police on a bizarre chase Monday as he jumped from one rooftop to another and over before being arrested.

Officers arrived at a home on the 300 block of Edan Avenue in Stockton at about noon with an arrest warrant for 36-year-old John Redmon.

But Redmon fled through the back door, officials said. The next time officers spotted him, he was on a rooftop and wearing no clothes.

The Stockton Record reports that Redmon jumped onto four rooftops in the course of the chase.

When police caught him, the paper said, officers had to use a baton to subdue him.

He was booked on suspicion on stalking, drug-related violations and resisting arrested.
